COVID-19 precautions

To ensure we can continue to provide our Tongue-tie assessment / release service as safely as possible during the current lockdown we have made some changes to our clinic appointments.  Appointments will now be split between an initial 45 minute zoom consultation and followed by a 30 minute face-to-face appointment.

This change is in addition to the following safety measures already in place: 
  • Limited printed materials, all forms, information and resources are online.  
  • A 15 minute gap between appointments to allow for surface and touch point cleaning and ensuring no crossover between clients.
  • Facemask must be worn by parent.
  • I will be wearing full, disposal PPE throughout the appointment (in line with Government Guidance).
  • Parent is required to use the hand sanitiser provided on arrival.
  • Temperatures are taken upon arrival.
  • Parent is expected not to attend if they, or any person they have been in contact with have had Covid symptoms or tested positive for Covid within 2 weeks of the appointment.  Please contact me immediately on 07754 020143
  • Only one parent may attend the appointment (if breastfeeding this must be mum) 
  • Clinic only appointments.
